In the hands of W. Ambrose Bebb, the published diary opened up a new avenue for Welsh-language literature- and Bebbs work was hailed at its debut as the tour de force of a true artist.... There is nothing exactly like it to be found written in Welsh, French or English. This contemporary translation gives English readers their first glimpse into the joys and disappointments, struggles and achievements of real life in Wales as lovingly portrayed by one of her favorite sons.
